  10. facebook twitter mania

    ok biztches. i’ve finally connected the tumblr with a facebook and twitter; now i can bombard your lives in more way than one. 

    please go ahead and like / follow / stalk / ignore me at :



    YUP that’s a “1" at the end because i’m slow on the uptake and people already stole my name (cuz it’s not like it’s not a popular phrase or anything), and i literally couldn’t think of anything else to do (and twitter wouldn’t let me do phdstudents.tumblr the bastarsd). 

    so if you find procrastinating on tumblr isn’t enough for you, now’s your chance to do so with me on twitter and facebook too!
